Hi!!

You didn't mentioned brand and model of your fridge, so I will give you a general answer.

Usually the controls are in the fridge compartment, either on the right or back upper wall. Usually is one control for the freezer and another for the fridge. The normal settings should be about 1/3 of the dial's range, ie. If dial have 9 numbers, the setting should be between 3 and 4, depending on use and outside temp.

Wait 24 hrs. between adjustments to allow the system to stabilize.

.NOTE:
The Freezer Temp. Dial is the main temp. controller, if you set it too low, it may not have time to cool fridge side properly.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!!

How do I change the temperature on my double door Samsung refrigerator ? It’s on 57• rather than 36•


First, I'm not a Sam Sung Tech, but I have worked on refrigerators (well old dial style). At home we just got one (2018) for our kitchen. we have the 4 french door model. I never set it as it's just out of the box and was installed by the installers from Home Depot, so it's factory set. I just tried to change the settings now. Looks like you hold down the fridge button for 3 seconds till it beeps. yours is a bit different as mine I have to press it additional times to light up what temp option I need; IE Frozen, soft frozen, chill, etc. (our 4 door option can change a compartment from freeze to chill) Once you selected the Fridge (or freeze) then check around the other buttons to change the temp setting. You may need to press a selection nearest the fridge or freeze button. It may also be the same button too. Hold on, lets check you tube....

I did not find your exact model. but if you can't find your manual then call for service and check your warranty. The Sam Sung service line may be able to talk you through the setting. Though keep in mind that that temp may be the acctual reading and not the temp setting. Your unit could be failing. Call for service to be safe.

Your ice box uses thermistors to judge temp. The control board measures the resistances changes in these thermistors and acts accordingly. This video shows how to check:

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If it is an electronic thermostat it could be that the engineer has changed the board but not the sensor which reads the temp. If it is a mechanical thermostat it may be hes fitted the wrong type.It could also be that the system is short of refrigerant and the actual refrigerant charge is not getting all the way to the thermoststs sensor to switch it off, the back wall of the fridge should be frosted at least 3/4 of the way down and not just forming in a small part of the fridge.

Meat keeps freezing in my meat drawer.Any thoughts on how to adjust the settings


There may be a separate control for the meat drawer down where the drawer is. If not, you use the fridge temp control. Make sure the vent between the freezer and fridge is opening and closing when you adjust the temp.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
